Rowing Trophy

Demonstrating the possibilities of combining the capabilities of FormScan 3D’s 3D scanning with Styrotech CNC’s precision machining, this Rowing Trophy is an exact, half scale replica of a sculling (rowing) blade, which has been mounted on a base to create a unique and innovative centerpiece for a trophy.

Starting with an actual rowing blade which was scanned in 3D by FormScan, the resulting scan data (which in its ‘raw’ form is an .stl file) was converted into a binary surface (a solid) that was then, using Alphacam, cut from Eucalyptus pilularis (commonly known as Black Butt, an Australian hardwood also used for joinery, furniture and railway sleepers). The machining of the blade is an excellent example of a possible way that the capabilities of each company can be combined.

Having toyed with product design for some years I entered the Formica Formations competition to test my blue sky design process, and was delighted to have won and had Beehive fully realised.
